National Survey for Wales

National Survey for Wales: results for Swansea - local authority level information from the Welsh Government's National Survey.

The National Survey for Wales is a large-scale survey of people across Wales undertaken by the Welsh Government (WG). It began in January 2012 and is carried out face-to-face in respondents' homes.

Each year, the survey is completed by around 14,500 people in Wales aged 16 and over (an average 660 people in each local authority), selected at random to ensure the results are representative. The survey covers a number of topics, with people asked for their opinions on a range of issues affecting them and their local area.

The initial local authority level results from the first full year of fieldwork (April 2012 to March 2013) were released by WG in May 2013. The results of the 2013-2014 and 2014-2015 surveys have since followed.  The attached briefing notes for PDF Document 2014-15 (PDF, 74KB)Opens new window, PDF Document 2013-14 (PDF, 102KB)Opens new window and PDF Document 2012-13 (PDF, 76KB)Opens new window provide an overview of the published figures and summarise the significant results for Swansea.

Due to a Welsh Government review of its large-scale social surveys, there was no National Survey in 2015-16; although it restarted in 2016-17 and will cover a wider range of topics.  Swansea information from the 2016-17 survey will be available on this page shortly.
